Aromatherapy, the use of essential oils as healing agents, has a long history of use in many cultures. These oils can have very direct effects on the physical, mental and emotional components of illness. In this class we will focus on oils derived from leaves, flowers, resins, woods and roots. The material covered will include: how essential oil use can fit into or be combined with other healing modalities; an introduction to the classification and function of various oils; how oils are made; how essential oils affect the physical, emotional and spiritual levels of our being; how to use oils in the context of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM); practical applications and treatments for a number of ailments; and specific protocols for such conditions as grief, insomnia, and respiratory, digestive and reproductive problems.
